THROWBACK: When A Sexy Pop Singer Pissed Off ISIS [VIDEO]


In 2015, Helly Luv released her music video for “Revolution.” The video was filmed in a village near Mosul, Iraq where Peshmerga forces were fighting ISIS. Needless to say the video really pissed off the Islamic State, and unsurprisingly Helly Luv received many death threats.

If filming her music video in an active war zone while giving ISIS the middle finger wasn’t enough, she’s also an incredible philanthropist. Created in 2014, the Luv House is a nonprofit that helps people and animals in need throughout Kurdistan. Her courage, talent, and generosity is why this Throwback Thursday is dedicated to Helly Luv, a bonafide badass from Iraq.
